Westport

What a magical weekend. We went to have some amazing local seafood at a restaurant called The Back Eddy in Westport, MA and it was perfectly timed for the sunset (coincidentally). It's still not really warm yet but it was warm enough to wander outside on the beach for a bit after dinner. It's a special day that I'll always remember.

Somehow, the forces of the world conspired to bring us together. Two people of distant origins and very different paths. Two people pursuing different life goals. Somehow, the lure of the ocean and the beauty of the sunset brought us together. One beach on one island in MA on one square yard of this beautiful, vast Earth was where we met. So because of this, the beaches of MA will always be special to my heart.

Mandatory step 1 when eating out with me...must take picture of food before consuming. Yeah, I look like a spectacle doing this, I'm sure, but this looks as good as it tasted. Grilled ahi tuna steak, some cabbage creation that they called kim chee (even my Brazilian knew this wasn't Korean kimchi but liked it nonetheless), and amazzzinggg grilled summer squash and zucchini. We questioned the new-to-us greens and wondered if the flower was edible.

Our table had a fantastic view of the sunset and the cutest, daintiest little flowers.

Right out our window at the table. No joke.

When dining oceanside, one must must must stroll along the beach...duh.
